Submission + - Should we be allowed to give away mod points?

earlymon writes: "Every so often I'll post something that makes sense to me at the time, gets modded up, and then later turns out to be completely boneheaded. In my case, this is often brought on by thinking to research something after spouting off. Per some law I don't know the name of (I'll try to look it up after this submission), often people correcting my mistake get unnoticed by the mods, and therefore less noticed by others. Does anyone besides me think that there'd be some merit in a capability for an erroneous poster to give his mod points to someone with a better POV or better information?"
